Test Prep

1) Learn the format of the test HERE.
2) ONLINE- you can find HSPT test prep at many different sites. Here are two sites we recommend: Peterson’s HSPT Test Prep or Study Guide Zone.
2) STUDY GUIDES- Most bookstores will have a test/study section. You can find the HSPT study guide under the “Catholic School Test”. (It will have other test prep in the same book, but as long as it has the HSPT on the cover, it will have two practice tests and study material).

Once a student has completed CHA’s entrance exam, it will take about two weeks for the results to come in.
